I just got a large wooden box from a delivery. It's 24 x 24 x 24 cm or 9.5 x 9.5 x 9.5. I just found out that it's waterproof so I can use it for plants. It doesn't currently have a drainage hole but I can easily make one. So now the question remains, what should I plant in it? I have these ideas:
-Lots of different types of drosera
-A mat of D. Pulchella or D. Sessilifolia
-One big drosera (Paradoxa/Adelae/Binata/Filiformis)
-One nep (Bicalcarata/Ampullaria/Some other nep)
-A mat of utrics
-A mat of P. Primulifolia
-Vft clump
-Lots of stylidium
-Lots of medium drosera (Capillaris/Intermedia/Anglica)

I think a mat of D. Pulchella with maybe a cool tiny folowering Utric in it would look cool. Maybe U. Bisquamata

Or

A pot full or D. Filiformis

Nice idea! It would make it look like the drosera make utric flowers. Maybe I can do pinguicula + utrics around it. Or 3 different utric species..!

Hey, kind of an off topic question, but have you ever seen any black ampullaria for sale around where you live?

Rarely. But they are more expensive and the online seller has WYSIWYG so I never get a chance to buy them.

I think you should plants a giant nepenthes with a few other plants in the pot (like sundews)

Also what does WYSIWYG mean?

What You See Is What You Get. You get the exact plant whose photos are shown in the listing. Usually means a single, impressive specimen is up for sale, as opposed to the "here's a picture of a small plant, I have a lot, yours will resemble this photo but may not be the same one" listings.
